About my Pickup

I scored this truck for free about 2 years ago, and instantly started modifying it. Did a complete frame-up customization of the suspension.  Triangulated 4-link in the rear with a huge notch.  1985 720 front suspension with custom upper and lower control arms.  Disk brakes all the way around.  Currently just dropped a ka24e engine in the truck from a 240sx.  The truck lays frame with 2600lb. bags front and rear and 8) 1/2" gold valves.  I'm running a 300lb. nitrogen tank in the back.  Future plans are to shave everything and clean the truck up inside and out.

NIce! REminds me of a 76 King CAb I had in the 80's (Rear window & side lights shaved, lowered, rims, tires, 115mph on a 2.0 with SUs header & a Slalom cam 2.5" exiting pipe; REALLY miss that truck!). Try adding 1.5" of curved metal to the bed to continue the curve "bullit" from the door & cab all around the bed.  Use a [straight] radiaotor hose to sand the plastic. Bondal '91 Toy XtraCab, ASE Cert autobody & paint, ret. Peace.
